Adirondack Backpacks
The Adirondack Pack Basket is one of the most recognized objects associated with the Adirondacks. These versatile baskets were used to carry just about everything the guides, hunters and trappers took with them into the woods. Create your own pack basket patterned from the traditional Adirondack Pack Baskets. Students weave a plain weave base with the pre-cut spokes and then weave the sides. Linda will be guiding students as they concentrate on shape, creating a belly, keeping the back flat while learning to continuous weave. After main weaving is done students will pack baskets tight, level the top, weave a false rim, cut and tuck spokes, insert a hardwood handle, and complete the rim and skids. Lastly, a custom adjustable cotton or custom leather harness will be applied for carrying. Techniques include continuous weave, fitting rims, cutting and tucking spokes, shaping and using a drawknife and more.
